A funny thing happened on the way to the radio station… Today's show was broadcast on 03/31/2009. I really enjoyed the April Fools shows, trying my best to pull a fast one on the listeners by playing and featured music making fun of other music and music that deserved to be made fun of.
Jonathan & Darlene Edwards create music with more enthusiasm than talent and it shows up brilliantly. The Edwards, AKA Paul Westin and Jo Stafford reappear with the Natural and the Unnatural Seven. Slim Gaillard’s live epic Opera In Vout is always worth the price of admission. Spread over 4 sides of 2 78’s! What does that equal? 23. Allan Sherman exposes us to the brutal and painful world of music composition by committee with a lesser known gem of his comic and musical genius: Peter and the Commissar. Early spoken word artist Sebastian Cabot demonstrates what can be achieved with a proper mix of Bob Dylan. This mix will indeed leave you shaken. We wrapped the show up in The Screaming Faloshes song Rasta Jew. The Faloshe regard themselves as direct ancestors of the lost tribe of Judea. In fact, they got so lost back in the 15th century that they ended up on a beautiful remote island they called Jewmaica. A few bits from The Firesign Theatre and Monty Python help round out a most delightful program.
